Students who enter the university from high school may transfer up to 12 credits from approved courses taken at other institutions, whether taken before or after matriculation. The grades earned in these courses do not appear on the Hopkins record and therefore do not contribute to the Hopkins grade point average. The 12-credit limit on transfer credits does not include credits from Hopkins summer courses, Advanced Placement examinations, British General Certificate of Education courses, International Baccalaureate courses, or other foreign certificate courses.
Procedures for transferring college credits
Private instruction in Voice, Piano, and Orchestral Instruments is offered on a space-available basis at the Peabody Conservatory. These lessons are normally 30 minutes in length, are given in 13-week segments in the Fall and Spring semesters, and earn a grade and one academic credit. Advanced students may be accepted for hour lessons which earn two academic credits upon recommendation of the instructor. A fee is charged for these lessons.
Auditions take place during the first two weeks of the Fall and Spring semesters. Repertoire for auditions is as follows:
Please note, completion of the Peabody Registration Application and audition DO NOT guarantee you acceptance for lessons at the Peabody Conservatory. Typically, accepted students have been playing an instrument or singing for a number of years and have received formal training.
